It has been a long week. I don’t know about you all but this week has dragged for me. I have been incredibly busy at work, working on one particular project that has been a headache and a half. So, I am especially grateful for a weekend away from my dual monitors. 

On a happier note, I have a friend visiting me up at the lake this weekend. I’m incredibly excited to show her around to all of the best spots in town. But, because I’ve got a friend visiting and my eyeballs are tired from looking at spreadsheets all week i’m not sure what the blog will be like next week. I might be MIA. In consideration of that I’m writing up a super-duper edition of Friday 5! Which, surprisingly I haven’t written since the beginning of June, but I digress.

Grab a cup o’ tea and a snack and see what my favorites have been this week!

Blog Posts:

//Legal Questions You Need To Be Asking About Your Blog- Jade & Oak// I love Jackie’s blog and I especially love that she shares some of her legal knowledge with us to help create better blogs. This mini-series of her’s that she’s starting is going to be incredible. I’ve already bookmarked this post for a week night that I can fully dedicate to auditing my blog. A must read for any blogger. 

//A Quick Guide to Houston, Texas- World of Wanderlust// So, I may or may not have mentioned that i’ll be doing a trip to Texas in October with a friend of mine. We plan on hitting Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas so this post all about what you can’t miss in Houston was perfect for me. World of Wanderlust is one of my favorite travel blogs and Brooke has amazing tips for just about anywhere. So, if Houston isn’t your thing, you should still check out her posts. 

//The 5 Products I’m Obsessing Over This Week- Simply Stine// Okay, so it wouldn’t be a weekly roundup post of mine without mentioning one of Christine’s posts. I really trust her opinion on products and she always does amazing reviews. I can’t wait for more of her weekly roundups because I know i’ll find some amazing products.

Internet Finds:

//Nordstrom Sale// So, unless you live under a rock Nordstrom is having it’s annual sale and people are freaking out. I love reading about all of the hype and I especially love to see what people are picking up. I’ll be skipping the sale today but i’ll see if I can grab anything good come the end of the weekend. Let me know what you’re grabbing!

//17 Maps That Will Change The Way You Look At The World Forever- Buzzfeed// As a huge Buzzfeed and travel lover I found this fascinating. Now, I knew that Mercator map strongly skewed the actual sizes of countries but I’ve never seen them moved all around like this. I was very amused by this to say the least. Did ya’ll know that Algeria is the 10th largest country? I sure didn’t. 

After reading Mary’s post over on Eat, Drink & Be Mary I scooted right on over to ROMWE.COM and placed an order. I cannot wait to show ya’ll what I got and it was all super inexpensive! I know the quality won’t be top notch but for the prices I paid i’m more than okay with that. Have you guys every shopped on ROMWE before?


Let’s do this.

Personal Favorites:

//Books//I just finished reading After You by Jojo Moyes and just before that I had read Me Before You. Guys, if you like cute, sappy, lovey books then these are for you. i loved them both so much and i’ll hopefully be heading to the library very soon to grab some more summer reads. I have so many on my list that I’m thinking about doing a whole book post. Would ya’ll like that?

//Exersise// I would not say i’m hardcore exercising by any means but I have been walking almost every day after work for a few weeks now and I’ve started to add in a bit of jogging as well. Baby steps. 

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!

Thanks For Reading// Being Leanna
